1

Before starting, preheat your broiler to high. Wash and dry all produce. Peel, then cut onion into ½-inch pieces. Peel, pit, then cut avocado into 1/4-inch pieces. Roughly chop the cilantro. Cut the broccoli into bite-sized pieces.

2

Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Carefully slice into the centre of each chicken breast, parallel to the cutting board, leaving ½-inch intact on the other end. Open up chicken like a book. Season all over with salt and pepper. Set aside.

3

Toss broccoli and onions with 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4ppl) on a foil-lined baking sheet . Season with salt and pepper. Broil the veggies in the middle of the oven until tender-crisp, 7-8 min.

4

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Cook, until golden-brown and cooked through, 5-7 min per side. **

5

Stir together mayo, 1/2 tbsp sesame oil (dbl for 4ppl), half the cilantro and half the sesame seeds in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the broccoli, onions, spring mix, and avocado to the bowl. Stir to coat with the dressing.

6

Divide the chicken and broccoli salad between plates. Sprinkle over the remaining cilantro and remaining sesame seeds.
